Nonviolent Communication at the Men's Jail
December 17th, 2015
In partnership with United Way of San Luis Obispo, we are offering 6 rounds of a 4-week basic workshop in Compassionate Communication (aka Nonviolent Communication, NVC) to men and women in our jail over the next year. Last week we concluded our first workshop with a group of 6 men. These men astounded us with their willingness to dive in and grapple with the possibilities for connection that NVC presents. A huge thank you to our facilitators--Rick London and Alicia Nowicki--to United Way of San Luis Obispo, to the San Luis Obispo County Jail Programs Unit, and to our men in custody who put in some incredibly profound work!
